The Centre recycles green waste into a variety of mulches and compost that are available for sale to the public from the Centre.
Mulch is very beneficial for your garden in the following ways:
- Helps retain moisture in the soil.
- Cools the root zone of plants which lowers transpiration of moisture from the plant.
- Builds soil structure and adds nutrients (fertilizer is still recommended).
- Aids micro-organisms that are beneficial to plants and soil.
- Helps prevent salinity problems by reducing evaporation.
- Introduces organic material into poor soils.
- Looks good!
